Podcast: From Overlooked to Center Stage (Overlooked)
This podcast is a recording of the presentation I gave at the STC Currents conference titled "From Overlooked to Center Stage."
If you read the essay and then listen to the recording, you'll notice some differences because (a) I can't remember everything I wrote in the moment that I'm presenting, and (b) oral delivery doesn't exactly work like a written delivery. Nevertheless, I tried to communicate the same story.
Note: See the essay that provides a narrative exposition of the presentation content.
